Cucumis sativus 'Lemon'

  • Cucumber 'Lemon' is a vegetable in the One Earth Edibles program.
  • Lacking key chemicals that create green coloring in the skin, Cucumber 'Lemon' is unique with its yellow skin and round lemon shaped fruit.
  • Cucumber 'Lemon' is great cut into wedges for salads, or can be pickled.
  • With a sweet taste - never bitter - Cucumber 'Lemon' is a great choice for any specialty edible garden or farm.

Growing Tips:

Harvest Cucumber 'Lemon' when fruit is 1.5 to 2.5in in diameter.

Cucumber 'Lemon' is a VERY late bloomer, so fruit will be harvested later in the season as compared to other cucumbers.
